    Even if you can't sit on the city's best patio all year, chef Tony Priolo's pizzas, housemade pastas and grilled meats make a trip worth it even in the dead of winter. Read more

    My favorite place for Italian. Chef Tony Priolo cooks seasonal rustic Italian food. The boys and I love to go for their thin-crusted pizzas. The restaurant has an amazing outdoor deck that transforms

    Peruse the thoughtful wine list, while settling on pizza topped with Mascarpone, sausage, mozzarella and herbs or string-cut black spaghetti with mussels, shrimp, calamari, clams and tomatoes. Read more

    Neapolitan pizzas and classic pastas deliver on their promises. Meat and seafood entrées marry fresh local ingredients with solid Italian preparations. The ivied patio ranks among the city’s best. Read more

    You won't find lasagna or tiramisu on the menu. Restaurant is very L-O-U-D-not the place for a first date. Very extensive wine list. Try the chocolate hazelnut dish for dessert. Trust me.

    Stracci de farro--and if the pasta of the day is a moonshaped pasta truffle dish-- it is a must try!!

    It sits on a corner of a very busy six-way intersection, but you'd never know it once you're ensconced in the backyard patio, shielded by tall fencing and surrounded by uplit landscaping. Read more

    I'll make this simple: I love every single thing here except the very tight seating. But for food and drink, it's excellent.

    Took my gf for her birthday. The waiter was super friendly and the service was awesome. It's a little expensive, but the food is incredible. Was totally worth it.

    Beautiful patio and good food. It's a great place with an Italian atmosphere. Good for dates. I would dispute the statement that it is the best Italian food in the city.

    Don't overlook the pizza options on the cena menu. We tried the pizza salciccia marscapone. Very authentic!

    The large plate of burrata (fresh mozzarella stuffed with cream) and culatello (a style of prosciutto) doused with olive oil is a treat worth returning for. Read more

    Great atmosphere but we've been here for an hour with no one to take our order. So go with plenty on time to spare....

    The mozzarella and prosciutto appetizer is excellent here. Note that it can get pretty noisy as the tables are close together in the patio.
